  • DPM: English Oak

    MHI’s latest seasonal camouflage pattern is DPM: English Oak and is MHI’s bold graphic take on maharishi’s AW13 DPM: English Oak & Berry a photo real rendition of an English Oak forest infused with bright red edible berries, referencing the hi visibility colours included in many hunting patterns. Several US states outlawed non hi-vis camo for hunting as a result of so many hunting accidents (approx 1000 a year in the US, including 100 fatalities) where hunters successfully hide from fellow hunters and get caught in the cross fire! With so much of the prey being colour blind, the orange and hi-vis layer in the patterns is only visible to humans. Maharishi and it’s diffusion label MHI aim to convey a strong anti-war sentiment through its use of camouflage – reclaiming its symbolic value away from war, back to its roots in nature and development by artists and to highlight objections to continued 21st Century warfare. To further that message Maharishi’s founder and creative director Hardy Blechman created DPM – Disruptive Pattern Material: An Encyclopedia of Camouflage. DPM charts the history of camouflage totalling 944 pages, from its roots in the natural world to its adoption by the military through to its proliferation in areas of modern culture such as art, fashion and music.

  • Mode 2 @ DPMHI gallery - Party and Bullshit

    Public Exhibition opens: Friday 19 Oct 2007 The DPMHI Gallery in London is proud to announce the launch of a new exhibition of works by Mode 2. Mode 2 is simply one of the most influential graffiti artistsof his generation. From his time as a founder member of the Chrome Angelz, one of Europe’s earliest serious graffiti crews, through to the years he spent in Paris as part of 93 NTM, he has been a more than worthy ambassador, exponent and leading light of his chosen artform. Over the course of more than 20 years his work has constantly evolved, tackling more and more complex subject matter in new and varied media, increasing his reputation throughout the wider art world, whilst all the time retaining his instantly recognisable style. “Party & Bullshit” is a reflection of what a good part of my life has been about, and sometimes still is; whether it be from watching b-boys getting down on the jams of back then, watching the ladies doing their thing too, getting sweaty with Mitch at Co-op on a sunday night, or hanging around in the Hoxton Square afterwards... even the long train or night bus ride home... The flip side to the partying is the reality of raising a child in an uncertain world, where environmental and geopolitical issues seem to point towards an ever more difficult future for all of us...”

  • DPM: DISRUPTIVE PATTERN MATERIAL – AN ENCYCLOPEDIA OF CAMOUFLAGE

    DPM (Disruptive Pattern Material) is Hardy Blechman’s exploration into the vast world of camouflage, charting its history from its roots in nature and art, through to its hijacking by the military and on to its current popularity and use within modern civilian design, art and culture. Now, after seven years of research, DPM (Disruptive Pattern Material) will be the most comprehensive book ever released on the subject of camouflage. Compiled and published by Maharishi’s Hardy Blechman, DPM is a 944-page encyclopaedic art book that charts the history of camouflage that is illustrated with over 5,000 images (many previously unpublished) and split into three very different sections. The story begins in the natural world with the colours, markings, and deceptive techniques that have evolved in plants and animals over millennia. This initial ‘Nature section describes the many ways in which organisms hide from and deceive on another with phenomena such as disruptive patterns, mimicry, and countershading. Stunning imagery for this section has been acquired from a number of renowne sources such as National Geographic, Oxford Scientific Films, and the award-winnin underwater photographer Dr Alexander Mustard.The contemporary spread of camouflage patterns beyond their military context is undeniable. The final ‘Culture’ section of DPM documents this expansion of camouflag into the work of painters, sculptors, graphic designers, graffiti artists, architects, fashion designers, musicians, film stars, toy designers, and a myriad of other groups. This section includes, among other things: a study of how artists such as Andy Warhol came to us camouflage; a guide to the innovative camouflage patterns devised by clothing labels; photographs of famous camo-clad cultural icons such as Robert De Niro, David Beckham, and the Notorious BIG; and pictures of a mind-boggling array of camouflage artefacts.Throughout this unique book a strong anti-war sentiment is expressed as DPM challenges perceptions about the militaristic, aggressive associations of camouflag and seeks to remind people of its natural origins and aesthetic beauty. DPM is the most authoritative book of camouflage ever published and an indispensable modern referenc guide for both the novice and seasoned camoufleur.DPM: Disruptive Pattern MaterialCompiled & Edited by Hardy Blechman & Alex NewmanResearched by Hardy Blechman, Alex Newman, Tom Trinkle, Ben Velez, Neil Davenport, Hiywet Abate, Simonez Wolf, Dr J F BorsarelloGraphics by Michael Hernan, Russell Maurice, Lee Glasspool, Tom Messenger, Stuart Daly.Military Consultants Gary Paine , JP Soulier, Eric Larson & members of the International Camouflage Uniform Society.“A monumental achievement” Stephen Bayley in The Times.“An amazing work of love” Veronica Horwell in The Guardian.“Best Books of 2004” in Wallpaper’s Design Awards.“Pick of the Picture Books” in The Independent.
